Hi. I'm Vanessa Withey (but you can call me Ness,) and I'm a holistic massage and beauty therapist. You could also call me a stress melter, a designer of calm, or just an excuse to get away from the kids for an hour. I'm passionate about natural health and beauty, and have a holistic approach, which means that I take the whole body into consideration. My aim is for you to feel the very best you can - but what does that mean to you?
It might mean finally getting rid of that nagging pain in your shoulder, or knowing that your skin is getting back its healthy glow. It might mean you've taken some time out to relax and pamper yourself, or it could just be the confidence of knowing your eyebrows look perfect today.
One thing I'm sure of: no part of us is separate. The way we look, feel, and take care of ourselves are wholly connected. It's not just about treating ailments as they show up, it's about becoming, and remaining, balanced and well - and that could be as simple as taking a moment to stop, breathe, and just be.
That's why I practice such a wide range of treatments - and why I'm constantly updating my skills and deepening my knowledge of alternative therapies; as well as my other passions, like yoga and nutrition. Each new area I study opens up another pathway to understanding how our bodies work, and joins a new set of dots.
And it's why I am also an independent consultant for Neal's Yard Remedies Organic, helping you to choose gorgeous organic health & beauty products to enhance your health and wellbeing, and of course pamper yourself with.

Ultimately, if you leave looking great and feeling fantastic, then I've done my job. And if you also have a big smile on your face... well, that’s why I love doing what I do!
I am based in Clutton, between Bath and Bristol, which is situated in beautiful Mendip countryside. It is very peaceful here with a relaxing atmosphere making it an ideal place to come and treat yourself.
